FRIDAY EVENING DabtenD Criftune SEPTEMBER 21, 1923 AA PHIIMT BAIT LURES VORACIOUS TOR TO DEATH And Mother Gets Her Baby Back in Perfect Condition; Also $2. fi By T. W. International News Service Staff Correspondent. MOBIL'S, Ala.. Scpu i."—Naked pickaninnies are being used as alligator bait around Chipley, Fla! But wait These little black morsels are more than glad to be led to the "sacrifice," and do their part in lurking the big Florida •gators to their fate without suffering so much as a scratch. With the demand for tanned alligator hides far outstripping the supply, hunters along the Santa Rosa coast of Florida have beset themselves to helping relieve the shortage and incidentally to fatten their purses. And little negro babies are providing a necessary part of the 'gator hunters' equipment. No, the pickaninnies are not torn cruelly asunder, like wiggling worms, and placed bit by bit upon giant fishhooks, but go Into the •water alive and whole and come out wet and laughing. Aside from the novelty of the method, this baiting alligators with negro babies, a-scheme said to have been originated by a Chicago man, there Is nothing so terrible About it. except that it Is spelling death for the alligators. FOND OP ITiESH. Above all other things, the Alligator Is most fond of human flesh «« an Item of diet Hunters say that while an alligator will risk its safety for a young dog, it will Jeopardize every hope of life for a live baby. And in the matter of color, the additional Information is vouchsafed that black babies, , in the estimation of the alligators, ar.e far more refreshing, as it .were, than white ones. According to reports, the method of bating with the negro baby is simplicity Itselt -Nothing is needed but the pickaninny and a Winchester rifle or two. The baby is placed in the edge of the water where it is shallow, near the alligator's haunts, and the rifles in the hands of expert shots, who are hidden behind nearby clumps of bushes and dense growths of marsh grass. ' / The "bait" is ; placed, in water Just deep enough so that .it can frolic and p5ay and splash its fln- gers through the water and white aaad in childish glee. The "bait" is used naked, which adds no little, BO the hunters are said to have discovered, to the value of the "lure." A black baby, or a baby of any other color, it is well known, likes to splash in the water when clothed, but stripped naked the child is In a heaven of delight and makes a great to do, chortling and laughing, which attracts the 'gator. THE 'GATOR COMES. Hunters declare that before the "bait" has emitted half a dozen or laughs, or coos (as his FREE Baseballs, Gloves, Bats, Track Meet Supplies FREE!

Now, the baby is always placed In such a position that there is shallow water for a considerable distance beyond, him, out into the water. Then as the 'gator draws near he is forced above the surface, wading toward the "bait" with his head and forequarters well exposed. Then— Bitig, bing, blng. Three or four rifle shots ring out, and the hunters rush into the water to retrieve their .prize. For Florida alligator hunters do not ever miss their targets. And as they rush, also rushes, usually, the mother of the "bait," who almost always accompanies her "coal black rose" to the hunting place. As the mother gathers up her offspring the hunters finish off the 'gator by blows from heavy clubs. And usually while one of tho hunters drags the "game" well up on the sands another of the group pays off the mother for the use of her negro baby. There is a set pr'ce. It is: : Two dollars. i OflEtHI LIFTS ON WHITE mm, SUIT "Lei's Not Be So Narrow- Minded," Says Mayor of "Fifth City." By WILLIAM J. HTJSKE, International News Service Staff Correspondent.. CLEVELAND, Sept. 22.—Cleveland's bathing beaches henceforth will not present a riot of color when maids and men seek relief from hot weather In the cool water oC Lake Erie or disport themselves on the beach sands. White bathing suits, taboo heretofore, because "too revealing," have received the official approval of no less an authority than Mayor Fred Kohler, than whom there Is no higher court of appeal in the "Fifth City." The edict permitting the wearing of the forbidden white was issued as a result'of a personal Inspection of the beaches by the mayor. Upon his 'return he called Park Director Kutenik , into conference; "I saw a lot of great big'signs out at the beaches saying 'No white bathing ouita allowed'," the mayor told the'park director. "I told the man in charge out there to take 'em down right away." "Perhaps you uon't know -the reason for ' those signs," Rutenlk parried. "There Isn't any , good reason," His Honor replied. "I know what some 'birds' claim is an excuse for it. ' "Let's not be so. narrow- minded. I've been around to lots of big beaches, and they let 'em wear white suits if they want to." So the big sign went down, and almost synchronously therewith pretty maids made their appearance on-the beaches In the hitherto forbidden suits.. Dealers in bathing suits reported a rush to purchase. "It's quite true that white suits are more revealing 1 when wet than the darker colors," International News Service was told. "Lots of beaches forbid their use, and our stock wan very low as it was • only people with th«lr own private beaches or' those who were going somewhere where there was no ban on them that bought them. We sold out oUi. entire dtock' the first day after the mayor lifted the ban. "It's getting pretty late in the season now to restock, but next year we'll be ready for the spring rush. The girls nowadays like to buy something that is considered 'daring,' and the advertising the mayor has given the white suits will help their sale :"or a while at least. "It's funny about this bathing- suit • business, though," tho dealer continued. "I remember when women's bathing suits were so voluminou.1" that I don't see how they ever swam «. stroke—perhaps few of them did; but now they're going to the other extreme, and it may be we'll reach the point where women in the water will be considered sufficiently clad In men's togs. It's rapidly reaching that point now." Safe With Student Funds Is Stolen BY INTERNATIONAL. NEWS EEKYIOE LEASED WIKE TO TRIBUNE. LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21.—Atter attacking and binding G. W.
